As I read all of the comments above, I keep coming around to the same question, but what about when you are at home alone..the silence is so deafening. For me I can be as busy as I want to be, I work, joined groups, etc., but at the end of the day I still come home alone.
My husband of 29 years divorced me 5 years ago, I also lost my son Jan 2012 at 30, and now my ex-husband has died too. I'm 58 years old. My two remaining children have their lives and I don't see or talk to them often my ex remarried immediately after our divorce and now my kids have a stepmother, my son is married so they have alot of people to whom to divide their precious time with. I hear from them very little.

When the silence hits no matter what I am doing or how busy I keep myself, there is no denying it. I do not like to live alone. I have not been successful in dating or finding a new mate, and I'm not sure of doing what we did when we were kids, find a roommate. Is there a solution to this?

I find myself alone. All of the things that I love to do, I have not been able to find people of my own age and skill set (sports) to do acdtivities with. So I go alone, I travel alone, I eat alone, I sleep alone, I live in fear alone....
